Robots of the world
The 10 most automated countries in the world? They are South Korea, Singapore, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Denmark, the US, Italy, Belgium and Taiwan, in that order. And the average robot density in Europe is 99 units per 10k employees, compared to the Americas with 84 and Asia with 63, according to the International Federation of Robotics.
Three out of the top five nations are in Asia, with South Korea’s 631 units putting the country way out in front. The development of robot density in China has been the most dynamic in the world in the last few years and the market currently ranks 23rd. Plus the government is looking to make it into the world’s top 10 most intensively automated nations by as soon as 2020
Europe´s most automated country is Germany and, between 2018 and 2020, the supply of robots will grow by at least 5% on average per year due to increasing demand, particularly in the automotive sector.
In the US, the main driver of growth is the push to automate production in order to strengthen American industries on the global market and to keep manufacturing at home, and even to bring back manufacturing that had previously been moved overseas.
